Real Madrid took advantage of a refereeing controversy last night in their Round of 16 match against Atalanta.
The Galacticos took the game as in the first half of the match, Ferland Mendy was brought down on the edge of the box and the referee ridiculously send off the Atalanta defender even though it was at best an yellow card.
Atalanta was left furious with the decision as they eventually lost the match 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Real Madrid.
Gasperini fumed, “This is football suicide. We cannot have referees who never played the game and don’t know the difference between a challenge and a foul.
“If they can’t tell the difference, then they ought to go and get a different job, frankly. They should get people who played football to referee instead.
“Referees also have video replays now, they have everything needed to judge, and yet even with replays they get it wrong.
“You wait so long for this event and then it gets ruined. We might’ve lost anyway, I am not complaining about the result, but we at least could’ve played our game.”
